NCEA Level 3 Food Technology
Teacher in Charge: Mrs A. Lamprecht
This course covers food nutrition and processing as well as general technology using the medium of food. It is a useful choice for a wide range of subject areas at tertiary level including food nutrition, food science and technology. Students need to demonstrate independence and efficiency in both practical and theory work at this level, so a good level of self-managing skills and practical competence is expected. The standards often allow students to have creativity and make choices about their practical work, while still working in a methodical and systematic way. Some of the standards involve both theory and practical components for assessment.
A student will be withdrawn from a standard if the teacher is not confident that the achievement of the standard is within the reach of the student or there is no evidence of the student attempting the assessment.
